USPS Reports High Service Performance Across First-Class Mail, Marketing Mail and Periodicals

WASHINGTON — The United States Postal Service reported new delivery performance metrics for the fiscal third quarter through June 24 showing continued high service performance across First-Class Mail, Marketing Mail and Periodicals. For the third quarter through June 24, the average time for the Postal Service to deliver a mailpiece or package across the nation was 2.4 days.

Third quarter service performance scores covering April 1 through June 24 included:

  • First-Class Mail: 93.5 percent of First-Class Mail delivered on time against the USPS service standard, an increase of 5.7 percentage points from the fiscal second quarter.
  • Marketing Mail: 94.7 percent of Marketing Mail delivered on time against the USPS service standard, an increase of 2.5 percentage points from the fiscal second quarter.
  • Periodicals: 86.4 percent of Periodicals delivered on time against the USPS service standard, an improvement of 4.9 percentage points from the fiscal second quarter.

One of the goals of Delivering for America, the Postal Service’s 10-year plan for achieving financial sustainability and service excellence, is to meet or exceed 95 percent on-time service performance for all mail and shipping products once all elements of the plan are implemented. Service performance is defined by the Postal Service as the time it takes to deliver a mailpiece or package from its acceptance into our system through its delivery, as measured against published service standards.

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

Consider this: 31% of our mail was slowed to achieve a 95% on-time result., The results being reported now are barely 1% better. If you know how to read financials, the 3rd quarter 2022 losses are 10x the 2021 losses. Year-to-year, month to month, do your research and tell me we’re on-track. Hell, read his own responses – things he put in place are failing. Unfortunately, he responds by believing we just need more of it.
